Key characteristics for PP-EVOH-PE



Protective and safe food packaging

Food safety is extremely important in fresh meat packaging. Choosing the right tray material is important for protecting your product from contamination and keeping it fresh and appealing. Skin-packed PP-EVOH-PE trays provide superior barrier properties, ensuring the safety and integrity of fresh meat, poultry and seafood at temperatures ranging from -20°C to 100°C. PP-EVOH-PE trays are also increasingly being used for plant-based protein products.

Food quality is ensured by an effective, food grade adhesive and outstanding seal integrity. The seal area is leak-proof despite potential contamination from meat juices, for example. At the same time, skin-packed PP-EVOH-PE trays are extremely beneficial in terms of extending your products shelf life without compromising on food safety. It allows your product’s shelf life to be extended, beyond what is possible with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), by up to 21 days and even further depending on the product. Extending your product’s shelf life helps reduce food waste, which is particularly important for energy-intensive food products like meat, poultry, and seafood.

Here is a short run-down of the 6 key advantages of PP-EVOH-PE fresh meat packaging when it comes to convenience.

  • Premium look
    It only takes a few seconds for a consumer to judge your product. Thanks to its premium look and appeal, PP-EVOH-PE trays help consumers assess the quality and integrity of your fresh meat product. The skin-tight packaging prevents unwanted air-pockets from forming and keeps juices from escaping.
  • Extended shelf life
    PP-EVOH-PE offers superior barrier properties, allowing your product’s shelf life to be extended beyond what is possible with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). PP-EVOH-PE extends your product’s shelf life by up to 21 days and even further depending on the product. This contributes to reducing food waste, which is important for energy-intensive food products like meat, poultry, and seafood.

  • Superior tenderness
    When consumers are evaluating your product, tenderness is important since it affects whether the consumer is going to buy your product again or not. Skin-packed PP-EVOH-PE trays increase meat tenderness over its shelf life, which helps increase consumer satisfaction and, consequently, the consumers’ willingness to buy your product again.
  • Easy open
    The seal application ensures that your product is easy to open and has a strong seal.
  • Freezer-to-microwave convenience

  •  Secure handling
    Our PP-EVOH-PE trays have no sharp edges, which ensures that they can be handled safely.


Perform well at point of sale  

How to make your fresh meat product stand out is a question of how it is perceived by the consumer. Besides keeping food safe, packaging is also a major factor in attracting the attention of the consumer. With fierce point-of-sale competition, your product – and its packaging – needs to be designed for maximum shelf appeal for it to be purchased. Skin-packed PP-EVOH-PE trays are just that.

Consumers associate meat colour with the product’s freshness. Freshness is therefore a determining factor when consumers are assessing your product and deciding whether to buy or not. The skin-tight closure of PP-EVOH-PE packaging is completely air-tight, ensuring outstanding food safety, presentation, and quality. At the same time, vertical facing allows for strong brand impact at the point of sale and reduced space requirements.
